This topic describes the specifications of performance-enhanced standard instances of ApsaraDB for Redis Enterprise Edition. These specifications include the memory capacity, number of concurrent connections to each instance, maximum bandwidth, and queries per second (QPS) reference value.

Calculation rules for bandwidth

  • If network resources are sufficient, the bandwidth is unlimited. However, if network resources are insufficient, the maximum instance bandwidth is limited.
  • The bandwidth value in the table is the bandwidth of the instance. It is the sum of the bandwidth of all shards or nodes on the instance.
  • The upper limit of the total bandwidth for a read/write splitting instance (as shown in the table) is 2,048 Mbit/s. After the upper limit is reached, the bandwidth cannot be increased even if the number of shards or nodes is increased.
  • The bandwidth value applies to the upstream and downstream bandwidths. If the bandwidth of an instance is 10 Mbit/s, the upstream and downstream bandwidths of the instance are both 10 Mbit/s.
  • The bandwidth listed in the table is the internal bandwidth of the ApsaraDB for Redis instance. The Internet bandwidth is determined by the internal bandwidth and is limited by the bandwidth of the connection between the instance and a client. We recommend that you connect to the instance over an internal network to maximize the performance.

Calculation rules for connections

The following example shows the maximum number of new connections that can be added per second: The maximum number of new connections per second of an instance is 10,000. The maximum number of connections is 50,000. The actual number of connections at the Nth second after the instance starts to run is 12,000. Then, at the (N+1)th second, the number of connections is 22,000 (12,000 + 10,000).


Q: Why does the maximum number of concurrent connections of my instance differ from that of the same instance described in this topic?

A: The maximum number of concurrent connections of some instance types may be adjusted after service upgrades. If the maximum number of concurrent connections of your instance is different than those described in this topic, refer to Change specifications and modify your instance configurations. You are not charged for the same instance type.
